Eastriggs

Eastriggs is a village in the south of Dumfries and Galloway. It has a small number of shops, a restaurant, post office, public house, working men's club and a church. Eastriggs Primary School feeds to Annan Academy.Geography and administrationEastriggs is built on generally flat land 10–20 metres above sea level. Annan is about 3mi and Dornock 1mi to the west of Eastriggs, and Gretna is about 5mi to the east. They are each about 1–2 miles (1.6–3.2 km) north of the mud and sandbanks of the channel of the River Eden, which extends west into the Solway Firth.Annan, Dornock, Eastriggs and Gretna are located on the B721, which runs parallel with, and is linked to the nearby A75. A railway line connecting Gretna and Annan passes through Eastriggs railway station. This station is disused, but there are plans to provide a smaller replacement once the line has been upgraded from single to double track, enabling simultaneous passenger and freight traffic.HistorySituated in the parish of Dornock, in the traditional county of Dumfriesshire, Eastriggs appears to have taken its name from the farm, or farm house, known as Eastriggs that was located in the middle of what was to become the new township. The only other buildings in the area prior to World War I were a group of houses at Lowtherton (now North Road, Lowthertown); a parallel group on what is now the B721 road; an inn and a smithy where East Road joins the B721.
